Industry Royalty Rockstar: Rod Lambeth

Although he’d be the last person to call himself High Point Royalty, we don’t know many commoners whose first High Point Market experience involved a rather unorthodox act on an $8000 sectional…

High Point 101

High Point 101

Overwhelming, confusing, hard to navigate...we won’t deny all those things you keep hearing about High Point  are true, UNLESS you understand a few things about how it’s organized.

High Point Market got its start 100 years ago as a sleepy little regional furniture exhibition that has grown organically over time into the sprawling trade mecca it is today.  For most of that time, there was no master plan…

Get Coached Up!

Get Coached Up!

One of the best, but most overlooked, things about High Point Market is the chance to learn. Our Market Calendar is full of panels, CEU opportunities, and events where you can learn all sorts of things about our industry and how to be better at what you do. It also includes purely social events, but let’s be honest, some of the best networking and learning from each other happens over martinis!

More Rockstars & Exclusive Deals

More Rockstars & Exclusive Deals

This week you are going to meet a former “pitbull” litigator who loves the Chicago Cubs more than anyone else we know and also happens to run one of the coolest decor and art brands at Market.

Plus we have another exclusive deal from one of our brand partners just for our Market Insiders. Who doesn’t love to save $ on great products!

Must-See Brands

Must-See Brands

One of the best things you can do to maximize your time at Market is create a list before you arrive of the showrooms you want to visit. But where do you begin? There are so many great brands to see, and so many buildings to walk through to find new resources for projects. Don’t worry - we did the work for you.

Industry Rock Stars

Industry Rock Stars

Our industry is full of incredible people, some with with very bold personalities, and some that keep a low profile. We believe it is these people behind the brand, or out front with a cape on, that truly define the pieces that roll off the production floor. So let us tell you about a few of the people that we think define their brands, and keep an eye out for even more over the next few weeks.

Time to Save Some Money!!

Time to Save Some Money!!

Being a Steelyard Market Insider has more perks than just knowing the hottest brands and where to get a delicious lunch (psst - Sunpan and Universal...so, so delicious!). You also get access to unique deals, specials, and incentives from our brands since they truly care about you, the design professional.

Top 5 Tips

Top 5 Tips

Yes, all roads lead to High Point. But actually planning your travel to Market can be overwhelming. Many hotels are already sold out, some of your best flight options go to airports 1+ hours away, and you have no idea if you need a car. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Restaurant Picks

We love good food. One of the biggest travel challenges at Market can be finding time to eat, so we want to help you plan ahead. Many of the local restaurants are fully booked during Market week, but there are still plenty of places to go. So here’s our list of favorites...from High Point to Winston and points in between.

Craft Beer Scene

We know a lot of you enjoy a good glass of wine or a strong cocktail after a day at Market (well, let’s be honest...at Market too!). The High Point area is also brimming with craft beer so we want to help you broaden your horizons. Cozy up to the bar at one of these local breweries or brewpubs to experience what the locals are brewing.
